Take a look at some of Mieke’s most recent news & projects!
At the start of the year, I shared with you the wonderful news of being shortlisted for the Beerwah Library mural. I was so thrilled to receive a phone call with the exciting news that my designs had received the most amount of votes. After a few hurdles and with lots of community support and RADF funding by Arts Queensland and Sunshine Coast council, the painting of the mural and workshop recently took place.
This afternoon there was a lot of activity in Art by Mieke’s studio. The kids enjoyed learning how to make a lino print. It was a lot of fun and we ended up making our first accidental instructional video. Scroll down the bottom to watch our first instructional video. I always thought I would be making my first instructional video before my kids would. But life is full of surprises.
As I was writing my essay “The Role of Street Art in City Branding Strategies” for my current Unit at Uni and ascertaining what I hit and what I missed I thought, hmmm, this is actually a good read….. So, I thought to share it with you. I hope you enjoy it! – Art by Mieke – Sunshine Coast © 2018
This mural is designed to highlight the important meaning given to the Black Glossy cockatoo by the indigenous peoples and how these meanings are important to our well-being as a community. This mural will enhance this public space and will connect the locals and visitors to this site. My design celebrates the meaning of the name of the place “Beerwah” through the use of the colour blue in design 1. In design 2 the natural flora is represented using line and pattern. This contemporary artwork will create a lasting memory and will contribute to the ownership and pride of this engaging public space.
